Hey Cheapy,

I can't believe I'm about to post something non game-related but do you remember a long time ago when you talked about the one way to improve the interface between a computer and someone watching porn on it? Well......

Cheapy, Wombat, and Shipwreck --

In walking the line between acceptable and unacceptable forms of in-game advertising, I had an idea that I wanted your reactions to. We already have had some company sponsored achievements in games (think Old Spice Swagger achievements in Madden 11), but what if companies sponsored or co-opted in-game achievements with an unlock on Xbox.com that allowed you to generate and print a uniquely barcoded coupon for the sponsor's product?

An example: In Ninja Gaiden 3, say, you walk into a particular room and decapitate all the enemy ninjas without taking damage, prompting the CLEAN SHAVE achievement, and a separate blip for "award unlocked" result. You now can log in at Xbox.com and print out a coupon for a free Gillette Fusion "Gamer" Razor. Or you get the "DOWN IN FRONT!" Borderlands achievement and get a Rent 1, Get 1 coupon from Redbox.

In my mind, it would add actual value to various achievements, drive you to Xbox.com (which Microsoft wants), to consciously look at an ad and coupon for the sponsor (which the sponsor wants) and possibly use said coupon to buy the product (which the sponsor also wants). You also keep the ads and logos out of games where they wouldn't otherwise belong, which the player wants.

What say you?

I have a question for Shipwreck- I don't know if I've ever seen you give an "Awful" score on any of your reviews. Has this ever happened? Also, if you had to pick a game from this year to give an "Awful" score, what would it be? I just played through Rock of the Dead and would like to nominate it.

What do you three think of the recent success of Kinect and Move?

Do you think this will translate into longterm success or do you still believe the devices are destined to fail?

Also, if sales continue, do you think this will have a "Wii effect" with a influx of crappy motion games?

In the near future, do you expect most releases to target this new casual gaming audience over traditional gamers?

Personally, I hope both devices crash and burn.

Love the CAGcast, keep up the good work.

Hey Guys long time listener here, Wanted to ask what's the best way to getting into video game journalism and being successful at it and how exactly did you go about getting press releases of games for reviewing purposes. Any advice on this whole process would be great thanks.

So apparently it is now possible to purchase live crabs from vending machines in Japan. No word if the GIANT ENEMY variety is available, but it IS Japan, so I suspect it's just a matter of time.

I know you've already talked about the weirdest things you've seen in vending machines over there (used panties, firearms). But what is something you would like to see sold in a vending machine that isn't currently available? Conversely, what do you never want to see behind that glass?

Cheapy -- did you see the Yamato movie? I'm a fan of the old school anime Star Blazers, so hoping you can give a short review of the movie.

Hey guys, I may just be missing it, but is there was any way to make our Wishlist available for others to see besides letting them in our account? Similar to Amazon's wishlist stuff, but far more useful with the pricetracker being attached to it.

Have you guys seen "The Human Centipede" yet? It is give new meaning to Ass to mouth.


Have to give a bump to this question as well. I've heard about it, but don't think I can watch it all of the way through. It's available on Netflix instant I think.

Would love to hear a movie review on this - any thoughts gentleman?

Don't make decisions when you're angry and don't make promises when you're happy.

Hey guys, I saw how much you guys liked Pinball FX 2 and how much Shipwreck liked the leaderboards. But do you think the game could be improved with by stealing from Pac Man CE and adding a Time Limit mode? That way you could play the game in 5 or 10 minute chunks instead of grinding away towards a high score. Or am I missing the point of pinball?

Also, what other games would be better if they just added a time limit?

Greetings from Kochi Mr Cheapy D,


I don`t think you have been telling the whole truth about the superiority of Japanese toilets. Outside of expensive Tokyo neighborhoods, and certainly outside of Tokyo, there are still many Washiki (Squat toilets!).


Have you tried to use one? How was it? I think it could make for an interesting You Tube video…


Love the show.

Long time listener, first time CAGBag question asker.

I know I heard about a Gamestop guarantee for their online used games to have cases and manuals on the CAGcast. But I recently just bought Little Big Planet GOTY edition and it came without an instruction manual. I can't find any new information on this and one of the top hits from google is from a year ago linking here to CAG. If you could point me where to twitter or email someone about this that would be great.

Thanks for the show, and f the haters.

That guarantee only lasted a couple months last year. However, normally you can just walk into your local store tell them you want to exchange cases for one with the manual (whether or not they have one is ymmv). I have done that a couple times and many CAGs have had the same success.

What's up guys? Quick question for Wombat, have you ever thought of starting a movie review blog? Your quick reviews on the 'cast have always steered me right.

Keep up the great work guys. I always look forward to the new CAGcast to play on my morning commute.

Hey cheapy, wombat and shipwreck,Is there any chance you would start giving rewards for finding good deals. Like if you found a deal that makes the frontpage you get a free cag t-shirt or something!

Then more people would be looking for deals.. so there would be more deals.. and that means more people come to the site..( maybe)

Hey cheapy, wombat & shipwreck...

Been listening for around a year now, can't claim to have been there from the start due to living in sin with IGN podcasts :( great show you have me pissing myself all the time, and having to explain to the missus when ever she walks in that im listening to three grown men talking about poo, shower piss and shipwrecks mommoth manhood... anyway finally signed up to the site and started participating due to the awesome "win everything" compo.

arse-kissing aside lol....


You ever thought of promoting CAG/CAGCast through a street team the same way bands do??? like getting a couple of sheets worth of stickers printed with the CAG logo and site address on, mailing 'em to who ever volunteers to spread em around their local malls or schools, where-ever gamergeeks dwell? could be an in-expensive way to rally more troops :P
Maybe start a CAG t-shirt range next time you do a competition, get CAGs to send in t-shirt designs and choose the best two or three to use. CAGs get another competition and you dont even have to do anything with the t-shirts apart from get 'em made. just a thought, apologies for wasting your time if you've already thought of any of this, or just think it's a wank idea lol

This is sort of a non-sequtier but rather than attempting to racebend Spider-Man
Spoiler
(which worked out SO well for Avatar: the Last Airbender) in a reboot of a franchise that arguably is starting to get a bit over-exposed (3 movies in the last 8 years with the reboot in 2012?). How well do you think a Static Shock movie would do? As a character he's basically a black version of Spider-Man. He's a somewhat popular character (he had a pretty darn good cartoon on WB), he has super powers you could spend a few million creating, diverse cast of friends, and interesting (if lesser known) supervillains to fight, family issues, identity secrets, and high school life to go thru.

No, I don't actually expect you to clickthru but if you like
1- The last thing Spider-Man should be is another white guy
2- Racebending
3- Donald Glover (Community's Troy) for Spider-Man

Not everyone needs to look like a 16 year old girl cosplaying a 16 year old boy, every-Japanese-artist-ever.
